Title: Kissed by the Wave
Series: The Forbidden Realm
Author: Serena Gilley

Kindle Edition
, 304 pages
Expected publication: August 5th 2014 by Forever Yours

Beyond the limits of sight, magical beings live in the Forbidden Realm. The two worlds were once connected, but the desires of man forced their separation. Now, desire may bring them back together . . .
Aliya is a mermaid with an obsession. Though contact with humans is strictly forbidden, she can't seem to stay away from the incredibly handsome Devin, who visits her lake night after night. Her body and soul have never been drawn to anyone like this before. Deciding that her longing for Devin is worth the risk, she goes to him. As their lust for each other deepens, Aliya grows to need his touch as much as she needs water.

Devin believed Aliya was a perfect fantasy his mind created-until the breathtaking mermaid swims to shore. Courtesy of a magical wish, Aliya is newly human, and she and Devin give in to their passion again and again. But Aliya's mortal form is only temporary. If they don't have the strength to part ways when the time comes, their illicit love could rock the balance between the realms forever . . .

My Thoughts
I recieved this book from NetGalley and am looking forward to reading it.  I requested it for two reasons:  1) The blurb caught my attention.  I hope it's as good as it sounds!  2) I've never actually read a mermaid book.  I'm intrigued!  Ok, and I admit that cover is what actually drew me in first :)


  1. Little Mermaid retelling!? How did I miss this on NetGalley. This sounds very intriguing.
